Time for a change of pace as you will trade the musket for the pen at the Academy of Athens, a testament to the beauty of neoclassical architecture. An integral part of the Athenian Trilogy (which also includes the National Library and the University of Athens), it is strongly connected to the Academy of Plato, the contemporary version was established in 1926.
